So, trick or treat?
Ratings and Reviews
Great but needs some minor fixes
The game closes randomly which I’m sure they are already addressing. Also there are issues logging in at times as well. I’m assuming both of these are related to a server issue with it being a new game. My biggest issue is the fact that I have to drive away from quests to relocate them. The first quest where I had to find a dead horse dropped it on a road that doesn’t exist anymore around me and would have involved an almost half mile long walk into a corn field. Every time I tried to reset the location I was told I was to close for a reset. God forbid the game sets up a quest on a highway or some other dangerous location and someone wanders into it. Other than trying to be fed to the children of the corn and the app crashing the games a blast though.
Monster Hunter? Not really…
Imagine being a monster hunter without a silver sword (a sword specifically designed to fight monsters). That’s your character in this game. For some reason the game starts you off with 2 steel swords in your inventory instead of 1 steel and 1 silver like every witcher should have. On top of that gathering crafting materials is an absolute pain. You get monster mats pretty quickly but you need a “bundle of herbs” to actually craft potions, bombs, and oils. To my knowledge, bundles of herbs don’t drop from monsters but need to be scavenged from randomly (and very rare) generated locations in the world. Talk about a progression roadblock. You also get bundles of supplies that you can’t open yourself, you can only donate them to people on your friends list. Yes, you read that right, you get items that you, yourself, cannot use but must be gifted away….
Also, it appears that the 4th story quest is bugged and never shows up on your map. I reached out to the devs about this but have yet to receive a response.
The reason this has 3 stars and not 1 is because I actually do enjoy the RPG mechanics in a game. It makes it more enjoyable than Pokémon Go because the combat is more engaging and there is actually a quest system (albeit a bugged one) with skill points. The core systems are solid but it just needs some refining to make it feel more like a game and less like a freemium mobile game.
Fun, Creative, and Extremely Addicting
The Witcher: Monster Slayer is an extremely well made mobile game using the Witcher universe and Pokémon-Go style gameplay. Players, like me, who loved hunting monsters in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will have a blast playing this game. Players have access to potion, bombs, and oil crafting, skills and upgrades, and a simple yet rewarding RPG system that all flows well into the combat. In combat, you can use Signs(Igni, Aard, Yrden, Quen, and Axii) by drawing their actual symbols in-game to use them against monsters. You can also use potions, bombs, and oils to further enhance your overall stats in battle. Instead of catching monsters, such as other Pokémon Go style games, you get trophies from monsters that you get to showcase in your collections. Monsters come in three rarities and come with a set of difficulties that require a normal level of grind to be able to fight them. I haven’t done much of the story yet but what I’ve done so far has been fun. The writing is well done and adds very simple dialogue choices that helps the story flow better.
